DON'T FOOL AROUND AND MISS THIS SHOW.
This is what THE GRATEFUL DEAD sounded like when I first heard them. I still love their sound from back then. This is Garcia with a Gibson SG in 1969( http://dozin.com/jers/guitar/history.htm
). Other Great Guitarists with the Gibson SG sound include Pete Townshend & Angus Young.
Get both copies of this show. I think this version is more "live" sounding. The other copy is cleaner, but cleaner is not always better.
When the music is played pianissimo, normal tape hiss from 1969 becomes more evident. It's called "authentic" Unadulterated, unmolested sound. With the "equalizer" on your WMP or iTunes you can easily "fix" the sound to your liking without losing the amibience of the original recording.
TUBE AMPS SOUND INCREDIBLE, this is a great example of the "tube" sound.
JERRY'S SOUND IS RICH, ALIVE, FULL OF TONE, AND COLOR. That SG sound was something.
Spectacular recording, sound, and performance makes this show a "MUST HAVE".
Totally enjoyable DARK STAR, 23:13
of travel on the audio highway of happiness. (AHH)
"Death Don't Have No Mercy" is fantastic. Garcia's sound is wailing like a mother crying for her baby that's died.
He sure could make his guitar talk. He had such a great sound back then. FAT!
Thin may be in, but FAT IS WHERE IT'S AT. THE FLAVOR IS IN THE FAT. AND JERRY'S SOUND IS FAT.
Eat, drink be merry and listen to THE GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love.
